Information on romance scams and scammers.

I'm currently on Match.com and saw a man who I thought was attractive, it's not the same photo that's already posted here. His screen name is williamsneedsluv, he claims he's 50 years , a widow, with one daughter and is looking to meet women who are 40 to 58.
Here is his "About Me" section of the profile I copied from Match, you'd think someone claiming to have a graduate degree would have more competent writing skills which is why I became suspicious and googled the last portion of it and ended up on this site. I sent him an email and enlightened him that he wasn't quite as clever as he thought. I would post the photo he used but am not sure of the legality of posting it however I do have it saved so even if he hides or deletes the profile I can pass it along. I will contact Match.com and let them deal with him. :=)



I'm Williams , I have one Daughter, I'm 50yrs Old and, I am an honest, kind, compassionate, positive person and I’m searching for my life long partner to share a Great Life of Love with; romance, long slow kisses, feeling very special, intimacy, pleasurable communication, dancing, meeting of the minds, opening a door for you, flowers, traveling and other exciting interests and adventures, A GREAT LIFE of LOVE! I am one who strongly believes in respect and that without respect, you can’t experience true love and generate a healthy relationship. I believe in a smaller "wow" when it is first a friendship and then a larger "Wow" later as it evolves into a Beautiful Loving committed relationship. Some people search their entire lives to find that special person ...that special person to love, to have incredible friendship with, to connect as one.. I am romantic and can be very spontaneous. I enjoy making people feel welcome and special. I enjoy entertaining especially parties
around my pool. I go all out for holidays (I usually blow a fuse during Christmas). I grew up with many traditions, and have carried those over into my life with my daughter. Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays, haunted house included. I tend to go a little overboard...hey, life is too short. I am definitely one of those people who take time to smell the roses, appreciate the stars, sunrises and sunsets. I have to be honest.. I do not like snakes and bugs, so the camper, I'm not. Give me a hotel room at the beach with plenty of suntan time, and I'm happy. I will go fishing with you if you want, but sorry, I don't do worms. I just joined a gym, and I've been doing pretty well with going 1-2 times per week well i will say Life without passion is life not worth living! I once heard in a movie that Love is “friends on fire!” what an incredible concept. I believe it’s not just what you are like on the outside, but more about what you are like on the inside. I’m seeking LOVE (no game playing please) with someone who appreciates. I am passionate about all aspects of my life, my lovely daughter, my career, and myhealth. I believe through this epistle you will understand me. I want to take her as a flower in my hand with which I'm charged with for responsibility to look .I love nature, and water and feel an especial kinship to just being near water and having water right near my home. I feel the peace of the world in the breeze cross the water, the lapping of the waves on the shore, the unassuming nature of water and nature. I am one with nature, and could
spend hours just sitting by the beach, river, lake, ocean and stitch, read, listen to music and feel at the end of a day that I've had an incredible day. Like camping, fishing, golf, watching movies, not much into sports but also do the side thing.. and not judge, or assume or tell u what to do. Hopefully i find my Godsent on here. shall i go on?My perfect match must be able to make me laugh, be intelligent and be my rock. But they must also need me to be their rock too. I'm a great listener, always have been. I have a lot of patience, and I've often been the peace keeper like making people laugh and I love a cute sense of humor in a woman. I also love a "gentlewoman." Respect is important. A relationship is a two way street; when one is down, the other helps bring you up. I want to share life's joys and sorrows with that special person. Right now, I'm interested in starting out friends and seeing if there's any chemistry for a possible long term relationship am very affectionate and need that back in return. distance never separates two hearts that really care, for memories span the miles and in seconds we are there, If distance were measured in terms of the heart we'd never be more than a minute apart, so what matter most in a relationship is commitment, honest and trust ..distance between two hearts is not an obstacle; rather a great reminder of just how strong true love can be, distance

Hi Eyeswideopen

Welcome to Scamwarners.

I have moved your post to its own thread as it is a different scammer, it just makes it easier for us to add information and makes it less confusing for our visitors.

Contacting Match will have little effect on the scammer, he will simply use one of his other ready made dating profiles to scam people.

In some ways it is better to leave their profiles in tact, at least we can point people to them to prove the scam.

Do you happen to have an email address, dating profile link or any other details for him to help us to investigate and to help other victims find him.

I am glad you spotted him as a scammer,

Please dont hesitate to ask if you have any questions

Just adding a search link showing another profile he uses Click Here

I will see what else I can dig up

The profiles I have found are older profiles and no longer available, interetsing that in those profiles he claims

Deep Horny for Him, Last Visit: Today. 29 year old Man Looking for Men

Hi and thank you for the welcome. Here is the link to his profile and thank you for moving it so the name will be exposed.

Here is the link to his profile...http://www.match.com/profile/showprofil ... filtered=0

Again thank you, I can't wait to tell some of my single friends who are on dating sites about this one. I'm sure I have a lot of reading to do here.
#15745 by Ralph Mon Nov 02, 2009 4:07 am
Thanks for the profile link, I will take another look there.

Telling your friends is a great way of spreading the word and is the best way of preventing people from falling for these scams.

If you are going to be reading up, here is a great place to start viewtopic.php?f=13&t=3607

Thank you again, I'm in South Carolina and it's late here so I'll have to begin reading some time tomorrow. Keep up the great work, if I hadn't found this site I may have fallen prey to this man.

I'm Williams

That's a good indication of a scam. West African scammers often confuse Anglo Saxon given names and surnames. Brown William is a known example.

Thank you for the warm welcome The Enchantress, this is such a friendly site and so helpful. :oh-joy: I have two more scammers that I'm going to post here but will do so on separate threads. I told two of my friends about this site tonight, we are delighted to know that there is a place to educate people on these con artists. I've found there is a definite pattern with their profiles thanks to Ralph providing me with the links. I've googled parts of both profiles and it goes to other websites with someone elses photos, part of one is the same one used by WILLIAMSNEEDSLUV.

Ralph, you are correct, Match.com has not done a thing to remove the profile of willaimsneedsluv.

Thanks again for being such a wonderful support team!
